Jackie Earle Haley For Green Lantern Sinestro?
Charge those power rings residents of Sector 2814, the rogue Sinestro is in the midst of being cast.
Jackie Earle Haley is rumoured to play the purple-skinned, widow-peaked mentor of the ring bearer himself, according to Ain’t It Cool.
Earle Haley is undeniably the go-to villain. His track record for evil-doing characters span Rorschach in last year’s Watchmen and Freddy Krueger in the upcoming remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street. So the buzz over Earle Haley deemed Sinestro frontrunner is no surprise.
But while AICN pedals the gossip, it seems Earle Haley is not in the loop. The latest news is that Green Lantern director Martin Campbell has yet to approach Earle Haley for the role, at least that is what he told Collider.com’s Steve ‘Frosty’ Weintraub on the red carpet of Spike TV’s 2009 Scream Awards on Saturday.
Green Lantern, to be directed by Martin Campbell and starring Ryan Reynolds, is targeting a June 17, 2011 release date.
